27. headnotes (ie notes of the court reporter) are not controlling
if the headnote fudged, and I'm not sure it did without reading the full decision, and later courts and judges used the headnote as precedent, they were idiots.

It is now settled law. Of course, it can be overturned by an act of Congress. That would require a whole new set of laws for dealing with corporations. I don't see personhood for corporations worse than indemnity for the corporate officers and board. Get rid of that and you'd see more responsible decisions. IMHO.
